I did include a mute function by clicking on the 'low volume' icon. This works in all other variations of Abrax except SP/SPCS (although it does work in the FloatPlayer). Reason being I forgot that I shifted the location of the volume bar (If you click on the S of SP you'll find where I put it . I've modified this and a revised version is available from the download link.

A matter of personal preference. If you use a genuine LED switch it doesn't change to a mid-colour when you hover your finger over it. It's either on or off. However, I have no objection to your suggestion and I'll consider that for a future update.

The genre field is set to non-scrolling so any excess length will be cropped....as you say, doesn't happen often.

I've watched the comments about this line over the past few months in various skin posts and personally, it really doesn't matter to me if it's there or not. Again a personal preference. However, as I've updated the skin files for the errant 'mute' button I've also hidden the line for the sake of peace and harmony.
Pman wrote:5. Lastly there's two black pixels on the + sign for main tabs. From far out it looks like the + sign is half missing.
On this one I'll admit I'm stumped. If you look very closely you'll see that it's not random pixels but a slightly offset 'text' plus sign. From whence it comes I know not as it sure as hell isn't in the graphic I use or in any aspect of the theme element. When the 'Oracle' (DreadM) returns from his meanderings I might just see if he can shed any light on this.

On this one I'm torn at the moment. My business is coming up to the silly season so time will be at a premium and my enthusiasm goes up and down in waves just lately. However, I still have a few things on the boil and I like to see things through to fruition so I hope to get these finished and (if anyone wants them), out there for public consumption.
e.g. Add-in float players to mix-and-match.....The effect/illusion of switchable panels on the player....A theme that has a massive player for those that want to see it from the other side of the room....and my current 'baby'..."miniMus" which has an absolute minute player for the main theme which also doubles as the float player....
So there's still a little life in the (very) old dog yet.
